I was never arrested in London for money laundering – Amosun’s wife

Wife of the Ogun State Governor, Mrs Olufunso Amosun yesterday broke her silence over the recent rumour of her purported arrest and detention in London over alleged laundering of about $US300,000, saying, she was neither arrested nor detained.
The Ogun State First Lady who made her first appearance in public since the rumour of her purported arrest for alleged money laundering in London debunked the claim while answering questions from newsmen in Abeokuta, the state capital, shortly after distributing free milk and other items to hundreds of expectant and lactating mothers at the State Hospital in the Ijaiye area on behalf of the wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Buhari who was the donor.
Amosun’s wife said the allegation was not true and that she was neither arrested nor detained in London or any other part of the world for the alleged money laundering offence or any other crime.
The governor’s wife had been accused of money laundering of about $US300,000, in London . The allegation which went viral on the social media.
To worsen the case, the first Lady was not in the country which almost confirmed the allegation. But, her appearance yesterday at the public function laid the allegation to rest.
According to her, the rumour of the purported arrest making the rounds on the social media in recent times is a concoction and a figment of the imagination of mischief makers and the authors of such rumour.

Amosun stressed that she had never been involved in money laundering or any other crime and would never contemplate anything as such, adding that her husband, Governor Ibikunle Amosun remained a man of integrity who would not condone such things.
The governor’s wife said, “Well, I thank you for that and I’m glad that you called it a rumour. I never did anything of that nature. But as you can see me to the glory of God, it’s not my portion; it shall never be my portion and I believe that you know your Governor, His Excellency, Senator Ibikunle Amosun fca, I’m sure you know he’ll never be involved in anything that is associated with money laundering or anything negative like that. So, as you said, it’s a rumour and it shall remain so. It didn’t happen, it hasn’t happened and it shall not happen.”
While speaking on the milk supplement donation by the wife of the president, Amosun assured that Hajia Buhari remained committed to the breastfeeding of babies by nursing mothers.
According to her, “That can only come from a woman of passion and empathy who is in the person of the wife of our President, Hajia Aisha Muhammadu Buhari who has decided to send milk which is called Frisomum which is actually like a nutritional milk for mothers because she like breastfeeding babies, so she wouldn’t like to support the programme that would negate mothers breastfeeding their babies. But this milk is actually of nutritional value to expectant mothers and nursing mothers and she has sent this milk to all the wives of the governors across the Federation and asked the wives of the governors to actually deliver them to expectant mothers in state hospitals and this is what I’ve come to do here today. I feel that is a worthwhile and passionate programme.”
She assured that the mission to rebuild programme of her husband’s administration would continue in his second term with a renewed vigour.
